The Christmas period is rapidly approaching and we all need to fit in the meeting of friends to exchange gifts etc. Nothing better to meet in a nice cosy pub for some nice food and catch up... After spending an hour or so on the web I decided to meet some friends at the Swan Inn near Hungerford. Based on...

I took issue with most of this reviewers wife's review posted as "Very disappointing". I take issue with all of this review which bears no reality whatsoever to their experience. The last paragraph accurately reflects the fact that we have a number of positive reviews and several 5/5 ratings by more than satisfied visitors-many from around the world. They were...

We went here for lunch and found this place extremely disappointing for many reasons. The inside was cold despite two open fires. I guess you could call the decor 'traditional', 'old fashioned' or 'shabby' depending on your point of view. There were very few customers in here on a saturday lunchtime so there was little in the way of atmosphere/ambience...

I take issue with most of this unfair review. The central heating was on full with an additional heater in the restaurant and the open fires. There were over 40 people in the bar drinking and several also eating. We are in a remote location which is the part of the attraction for many but one can not expect many...

Managed to get some lunch before close of service. The pub can either be seen as characterful or tired. The service was non existent, our first drink was served by the friendly local. The food was ok, rather salty and not at all cheap. Maybe ok if you are in the area but I think there are a lot better...

Disappointing to see this review particularly as we provided food after the kitchen had just closed. As they acknowledged one of our locals started to serve drinks but our bar manager arrived while he was doing this and dealt with the orders. There were no complaints made at the time and we do not understand the reference to salt since...

My wife and I stayed four nights. The owners were away, so it was left to Andy, a local agricultural worker, to manage the place - assisted by Victor and Lucy, a Spanish couple. It's a decent village pub with an organic-food shop attached, and our breakfasts were exemplary. Our twin-bedded room was clean and orderly, yet it did have...

I checked in for one night with my 8 year old daughter. No real reason other than to escape High Wycombe for a while. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I found the staff charming (Helen, in particular) and the locals we met were friendly and welcoming. One even took us to the nearby farm so my daughter could...

Lovely Inn which is full of character and characters. We found it very welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and tidy and fulfilled our requirements. Will certainly stay again next time we visit Hungerford We ate lunch there which was a very good standard for pub food. Situated a little further outside of Hungerford than we expected but the...

We came for a Saturday lunch in May, and when we arrived there was only one other person there and when we left there was also a table of 10 there, so it was quite quiet. In addition to being a pub it is also an organic farm and has shop, as well as other facilities. The menu is interesting...

Visited this pub with 3 friends after a 5 mile walk. One friend suffers memory loss due to a previous brain tumour that has left him with a child like outlook but as much as possible we encourage him to be independent.

Went a couple of weeks ago (live in the village) with local friends who hadn't been there for a while. Quiz night started around us which drew a friendly crowd. Good beer, a huge lasagne and chips, warming fire, made for a fine evening. It seems that if a pub hasn't been Gastro-fied, like the Swan, it is out of...
